The Family-Focused Center (FFC) for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Children is a comprehensive Children's Health℠ program that works with patients and their families when a child is newly identified as deaf or hard of hearing, or other hearing needs.
The FFC staff work with patients, their families and their physicians to provide resources and education regarding hearing needs. We offer a Family Resource Center, Social Services and Child Life professionals on-site. We also provide education and collaborative support to physicians and medical home providers who care for deaf and hard of hearing patients.
For those patients who meet criteria to receive a cochlear implant, and whose parents are interested in pursuing this option, we can connect you to the UTD Callier Cochlear Implant Program at Children's Health. You will have one-on-one time with your provider to discuss your individual needs and/or concerns so we can guide you to the best resources for you and your child.
